Making the Grade - Winter 2014

Posted On: Tuesday, February 25, 2014 - 16:39

The Board of Education voted on February 24 to extend the hours of school day by 10 minutes.  The additional time will be distributed into the master schedules at each school building.  They also approved adding an additional day to the end of the school year for snow make-up days.

The Franklin Township schools missed 7 days of school due to the inclement weather.  The 7 days are being made-up as follows:

DATE MISSED MAKE-UP SOLUTION
January 6 -  State granted waiver of attendance
January 7 -  State granted waiver of attendance
January 8 -  Martin Luther King Holiday used as a make-up
January 9 -  Presidents’ Day Holiday used as a make-up
January 10 - Thursday, May 29 added to the student calendar
January 28 -  Friday, May 30 added to the student calendar
February 5 -  Minutes added to the instructional day to make-up time missed

The adjusted time schedule will begin on March 3 and will continue through May 30, 2014.  Essentially 10 minutes has been added to the END of the regular school day on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  NOTE THAT THE TIMES FOR WEDNESDAY EARLY RELEASE DAY HAVE NOT CHANGED.  We will continue to follow the PLC schedule that was created at the beginning of the year, including the early release for students so teacher have time for professional development.

Bunker Hill Art Teacher Miss Wuest travels to Haiti every couple of years to volunteer at a school. Each time she goes, she tries to make a connection between Bunker Hill and the school she works with in Haiti. Students took the initiative and are creating individualized coloring books for the students in Haiti. The whole school is behind this incredible project demonstrating their generosity and compassion toward others. Great job Miss Wuest and the Bulldogs!

Our AMAZING PTC is raising funds for the purchase of web cams and smart clickers for the 44 classrooms in our elementary school. The web cams will enable the teachers to skype with other classrooms around the world, authors of books, etc. The opportunities are endless! The smart clickers enable the teachers to obtain real-time test data, thus enabling them to tailor the lessons better to the specific needs of each classroom. We are a large elementary school with 1100 children, so it will cost around $5,000 to purchase this equipment. Below is a link for the PTC's GoFundMe project. PTC is using this website to help raise $5,000 to purchase this new technology. (This website is much like Donors Choose. It provides a place where people can donate money to a specific project.) The website is: http://www.gofundme.com/kitleyptctech Thank you in advance for taking the time to check out this awesome initiative!! Please feel free to share this with your friends also.

The Social Studies department at FTMS-EAST is proud to announce our first annual Night of Remembrance, commemorating The American Civil War. The American Civil War could be considered the most tragic episode of our history. A bitter war, fought on our soil, among our own people, it was literally a brother versus brother war. At its conclusion, an estimated 620,000 Americans had lost their lives. Please join us on 5-1-14 in the cafeteria at EAST for this very special evening. The finest projects created by EAST 8th grade students will be on display for parents, students, staff, and the community. The doors will open at 6:00 for the viewing of the student work. Also that evening, guest speaker private Sam Watkins, Company H, 1st Tennessee Volunteer Regiment will join us to share his story of his life in The Army of Tennessee. The presentation by Mr. Watkins will begin at 6:30, followed by a question and answer session with this veteran who participated in every major battle in the Western theatre of the war. The Social Studies department hopes that you make plans to attend this unique and special event for our 8th graders and their families. It will be a remarkable chance to share the efforts of our students and remember the men and women who helped make our nation what it is today.

Congratulations to Brad Gardner & the members of FC Singers on being named the 2014 Indiana State School Music Association Mixed Show Choir State Champion! This win comes after their two consecutive ISSMA Concert Choir State Championships in 2012 & 2013. High Voltage was named 1st runner-up in the Women's Show Choir Division. This could not be done without the support of the township, its administrators and staff-especially the elementary music teachers and middle school choir directors. This achievement is the culmination of years of dedicated excellence in education. All three FC show choirs will be performing their shows one last time at Escapade on Thursday, April 10 at 7:00 PM in the Robert L. Mason Auditorium at Franklin Central.
